VAT compliance

VAT reporting requirements differ from business to business and, whether you are a sole trader operating one of the special accounting schemes or a large company with additional cross border and international reporting requirements, we provide a range of services to assist you in meeting those obligations.

With HMRC taking an increasingly strict approach to VAT compliance, the importance of robust processes and controls to demonstrate “reasonable care” is essential. We offer a full service for the preparation and submission of VAT returns, EC sales lists and Intrastat declarations, leaving your staff free to focus their attention on other business areas. Alternatively, if you wish to retain the completion of these returns in-house, we offer a pre-submission review to validate that the correct treatment has been applied.

In addition to regular reporting, we offer support with other compliance matters, including:

  • Assistance with VAT inspections and enquiries;
  • VAT registrations;
  • Options to tax;
  • Partial exemption calculations; and
  • Overseas refund claims.

The experience of our team gained through previous successful negotiations with HMRC means that you can allow us to give you peace of mind that your VAT systems and processes are robust; letting you focus on your business.
